Our Vision

What excites us?  The innovative, the new, the disruptive!
We are excited about introducing innovative IoT (Internet of Things) / hardware products into the market. Our primary focus is the hospitality sector, where our aim is to enrich the guest experience and generate extra revenue for hotels.

Our Products

Our primary product "The Smartdrinx System" is designed and placed to enrich the guest experience in the hospitality industry.

Smartdrinx is the only in-room system in the world that can replace the loss making minibar / fridge with a no-hassle, profit centre and marketing platform in every hotel room, suite, chalet, or apartment. This captive audience creates opportunities for brand positioning, additional marketing and sales opportunities.


The Market

With a global B2B potential of 17+ million hotel rooms, total estimated available market of 8 million hotel rooms and a serviceable obtainable market of 1 million hotel rooms, our growth potential is truly global.

The signing of a $1Bn Sales & Distribution Contract in the Gulf Region will see 150,000 units fast tracked into hotel rooms, luxury suites and apartments, over the next 4 years.

Our unique system and patent IP crucially locks out competition.

Hoteliers in the gulf region are particularly seeking out the latest state-of-the-art technology to enhance their guest's in-room experience, and SmartDrinx ticks every box!

The value proposition demonstrates that each unit creates additional revenue of $3,000 per room per year. For a 250 room hotel this is $3.7m added to the bottom line over 5 years.
